* Not played quite straight in ''SouthPacific'': Emile isn't around when Nellie sings "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta my Hair" and washes her hair on stage. (She does ''not'' "wash that man right out of [her] hair", as her very next number is "(I'm in Love With) A Wonderful Guy".) Lampshaded by her fellow nurses:

* Series/ThePrisoner: Oddly enough, this is Number 24's excuse when Number 6 calls her for help in "The Schizoid Man." She comes anyway.
* In ''HelpImATeenagedOutlaw'', Lady Devereux tells one of the servants in one episode (who is asking her out) that she will not be coming out with him because she is "washing her hair."
* Played with on ''DawsonsCreek'' when Joey tells Dawson that if he can't find a date for a double date, he should call Jen and tell her he can't go out because he needs to "wash his hair"
* In ''KenanAndKel'', after being rejected in the phone with this answer, Kenan suddenly remembers that the girl he was asking is bald.
* Series/{{Mash}}: Colonel Blake once put the moves on a nurse. He complimented her on her scent, to which she replied, "I just washed my hair." When the colonel goes a little further, she brushes him off with, "I have to wash my hair."

* In an episode of ''Series/MrBelvedere'', Kevin delivers take-out to a young woman, and wonders why she's alone on Saturday night; she tells him she was thinking about going out, but figured she'd stay in and wash her hair. Kevin is surprised girls "actually do that", thinking it was just an excuse to turn him down. Then it turns into a complete Inversion of the Trope, as the two wind up in bed, the woman needing it as she was getting over a break-up, leading to some in-family turmoil. ([[FairForItsDay Note that this was unusual]] [[The80s for a sitcom at the time]].)
